The Master of Business Administration is a one-year master’s programme taught in English with an international focus. The course is designed to prepare the student with academic knowledge as well as hands-on expertise, enabling lifelong success within the growing field of international management.
KU Leuven’s Master of Science in Business Administration programme is designed to challenge students to think, perform and grow towards a successful launch of their careers and to prepare them to move on to leadership positions - from supervisory to more senior roles - in entrepreneurial start-ups, multinational companies or non-profit organisations. The programma's design allows students to tailor their individual programmes to their own preferences and ambitions.
The one-year programme is taught entirely in English. Our students can participate in exchange programmes with numerous partners both within and outside Europe.
EEA nationals and Non-EEA nationals who reside in Belgium under a valid residence permit can follow less than 60 ECTS per academic year and accordingly spread their studies in several years. This possibility needs to be discussed with a study career consultant. Note that there are no part-time, evening or weekend courses organized for this category of students.
As a Master of Business Administration you are well prepared to take up a position in a wide range of national and international companies and sectors. Depending on your own personal interests and career goals, a master's degree in Business Administration will give you access to positions in purchasing, sales, marketing, production control, planning and budgeting, financial management, ICT, banks and insurance companies, the civil service, the European institutions, or you can start your own company.
